Was £99.02 and then £87.97 earlier in the week. This is still a good price and annoyingly the price I had to pay yesterday for it.

The 87pounds order is got cancelled, what a shame. I won't buy from Ebuyer anymore.

Im sure they wont mind ;)

The 87 pound was annoying I admit as I placed an order when it was that price but to be fair it was listed at that price when it wasnt in stock. Ive bought numerous things from Ebuyer over the years (my entire current pc is basically from ebuyer) and the level of service I have received will not stop me shopping with them (when they are cheapest) due to one cancelled order (that I was dubious about receiving anyway).

Never heard ebuyer refunding an order on a misprice! All I can say is I've used them for years and they are by far the best IMO. Returns are painless, orders come quick, fast telephone support if needed.

I also ordered at £87, but stock was showing as 147 at the time. Order duly cancelled.

What annoys me is that there is a £5 charge for rapid return of Paypal funds to my bank., that and their lousy eNotes system.

I use them a lot, no other complaints.

Me neither, unless you use paypal or google checkout because then the money is taken by those immediately and not ebuyer, therefore technically it isnt ebuyer refunding but paypal/google.

Not bad if you want a slightly worse drive for slightly more money.

In fact, the action for misprice was not a good move. Assuming that they will lose 10POUNDS for selling each @87 (In fact, they might still make money at such price), the total stock on that day was about 200, which come in total lose = 2000POUNDS. It's not a big deal for a big business. Bare in mind, many ppl might big some extra with the order which virtually brings up the sells.

Nice deal I did not spot this one, although from a power / noise perspective (i.e. in a NAS) 5400 is preferable. My nickname for Hitachi deskstar drives is 'hitachi deathstar' since the are my worse for fails. Maybe pepp77 has a similar experience.

In saying that I have a 1.5TB sammy, but otherwise its new terriroty for me. Fingers crossed.

Nah I reckon pepp77 is probs a know it all from the late 1990s where they had the "deathstar" nickname for a year or two.

People can be pretty ignorant to think a hard drive manufacturer is going to make the same mistake for 10 years on a product they make, oh yeah not just one product but every product.

Ridiculous, unfounded nonsense although for a NAS your obviously best off with a lower RPM drive.

Unreliable company, i had customers waiting build of their pc from a supposed misprice this company didn't honour for this very drive, despte that the misprice was slight and noone knew it was actually a misprice... will never use them again, voted cold

haha I was going to buy one of those for £87 but something told me to wait

I would avoid buying this from ebuyer on principle. I cannot believe they let hundreds of people order this a few days ago @£87.97 and then cancelled it, over a few quid difference to the next cheapest vendor @ £93.99.

maybe it wasnt in stock when you ordered, but for a good few hundred of us, we ordered it while it was in stock, at that price and it then went into preorder mode, when perhaps you ordered it. It wasnt even a bargain or a 'steal', just a mere good price.
#22
This is a good deal, although i advise people to say away from the Hitachi. They always have a tendency to fail, and many benchmarks have shown that western digital and samung's 5400rpm drives are actually faster than the hitachi 7200rpm!

However the recent drives are from last year, which is probably why there have been so many special offers of late. Still great for storage, although the 2010 drives are probably out soon, they should have 7200rpm
#23
good deal, I usually buy Samsung because I find them the most reliable in my experience.
#24
Hot from me, great price for a 2TB Samsung drive, I think I'm going to order me one now.

Would anyone recommend against streaming HD movies over my network to my PS3 from this drive?

The super saver 5 day delivery is always quicker than 5 days! I ordered mine @ the £87.97 price on Monday nite when there was only 21 left in stock and mine was delivered promptly yesterday (Wednesday) by UPS. That's nearly a 1 day delivery for free in my book, if I'm ordering so late on a Monday night!

I was waiting for these to come under £100 to buy, so this is still hot hot hot! :)

eBuyer have never left me down in the past and I've been using for about 6-7 years. Whenever I've had the odd problem with a product they're organised a replacement or refund quickly.

Well you must have been very lucky to receive the drive for that price. I bought 8 Drives and 2 four bay NAS enclosures. The order came to £1400, they cancelled the hard drives yet kept the Nas drives allocated and ready for despatch.

That made me have to ring them and pay 10pence a minute to cancel the NAS enclosures, I mean... What was the point of them sending the NASx2 if they weren't supplying the drives? Ridiculous, won't use Ebuyer again and I have spent considerable money with them over the years.

What do you mean slightly worse?

He probably means that it isn't quite as good.
#29
don't do it folks, samsung have become the new maxtor when it comes to rubbish drives.

i'm currently listening on to my 1tb F3 humming and vibrating as if its about to get the click of death just like the previous four F1's did within 6-12 months of purchase.

from now on its WD caviar black/green all the way for me.

I use computers on a regular basis (for my job) and the only hard drive manufacturers I have had issues with are Seagate and Hitachi. I have 7 hard drives at home currently 1 Maxtor, 4 WD and 2 Samsungs with no issues, so IMO WD and Samsung are currently the best/most reliable HDD manufacturers.

Also from reading reviews and benchmark tests the Samsung and WD green drives always seem score much better than the hitachi offerings.

So I am not saying hitachi make bad drives still, I am just saying that they are not quite as good as Samsung and WD, so why pay more for one.

hard disk manufacturers seem to go through a phase of making crap drives, experiences i can remember:

nine 80gb maxtor ide drives myself and friends bought, all died within six months, not even the same batch/supplier, although i've got one of them still working eight years later;

three wd2500aaks drives bought from scan around 2005 dead within months, still got 2-3 working today, one died just the other day. think i've bought eight or so of those. scan are the worst people to get replacements from, ebuyer are much better;

four samsung spinpoint F1's died in under a year, an F3 on its way out, one F1 still working after about 18 months (i think that is the refurb replacement i got from samsung interestingly enough);

the ibm deathstar debacle;

the seagate 7200.12 firmware debacle;

going back a bit, there were fujitsu 1.2gb drives about ten years ago that failed almost instantly as you plugged them in, worked a computer shop back then and they were a laughing stock, sold plenty of connor drives that year! there were maxtor 2gb drives that didn't like certain cd-rom drives too lol!

a friend of mine sent one of his 7200.11's to a disk recovery company who said that the seagate 7200.11's had such poor power supplies that most of their work was from them in the past two years. they literally replaced the psu and got 99% of his sectors back.

@bytemaster

paypal sucks use cash card or even credit card for miss-priced / soon to be out of stock purchases.

if you cant get either a credit or debit card sort it out man! these are tools for the 21st century and you'll get left behind without them. cash is still king, pay cash wherever you can,.

I've been running 6x1Tb F3's in my home server for 18 months now and not one failure/concern

Sorry, have to disagree - as I said, unless they have a habit of stealing money, taking 4 weeks to deliver, not honouring RMAs, etc. then the deal is the price (inc. postage). As for the keyboard, it is just fine - the CAPS was frustration at people who can't grasp what has been said many times: VOTE ON THE DEAL, NOT THE MERCHANT/ITEM.

Surely the merchant has to be a factor.

An iPhone from O2 at a decent price has to be better than one from [url]www.nigerian-scammers.com[/url] at the same price.

Evidence for "tendency to fail"?

Which benchmarks? From Toms, comparing the models discussed (Samsung EcoGreen F3 2TB, Hitachi 7K2000 2TB, WD Caviar Green 2TB) you'll see the Hitachi wins on all the benches that count:

Sorry, have to disagree back at ya! and i will VOTE AS I PLEASE as i believe there is more to a deal than just a cheap price tag.

here is one example, if something were to go wrong with your item, with ebuyer you cannot arrange a return directly online, you have to call their 08xx number to speak to a "technician" who has to authorize it, which costs money! have you ever had to rma something to these guys? you will spend 10 minutes within their phone system in a queue!

Whereas, amazon doesn't need you to do all that crap, and more importanly it costs you no extra cash

Also, for all i know this is yet another misprice, i don't have the time to take the chance again, they have already delayed build of 2 pc's because i ordered 2 drives which they rudely cancelled, instead of asking me if i wanted to pay the balance, and misprices aren't deals, they are what they are, just misprices and are rarely honoured.
